Abstract:

"Spies and Espionage examines the covert operations of the world's most famous - and infamous - spies. It tells the tales of the fearless individuals who passed on information for the sake of their country, for political gain, or simply for monetary reward. Each entry - or dossier, if you like - details the spy's personal history, dangerous missions, surveillance tactics and equipment, code names and codes, and the dramatic outcomes that resulted from his or her actions. Historical photos, including maps, plans, and other documents, illustrate the spies' stories." "Spies and Espionage contains the adventures of the most exciting spies in history, including Nathan Hale, the American Revolutionary War patriot hung in 1774 by the British; Mata Hari, code name H-21, the femme fatale who was a spy during World War I; and John Anthony Walker Jr., an American spy for the Soviets for almost twenty years during the cold war."--Jacket.
